The information in this page relates to customisations in JIRA. Consequently, Atlassian Support cannot guarantee to provide any support for the steps described on this page as customisations are not covered under Atlassian Support Offerings. Please be aware that this material is provided for your information only and that you use it at your own risk.
Also, please be aware that customisations done by directly modifying files are not included in the upgrade process. These modifications will need to be reapplied manually on the upgraded instance.
In some usage scenarios, you may want to include a customized message on JIRA's login gadget to include messages you'd find useful or remove certain elements. Since there's no way to modify the gadget through JIRA's interface, you'll have to manually edit its source files.
